Right, which is tip 5 "Get to the point". If you're asking somebody for help, don't trick them or "hook" them. Actually the example you provided has context ("I'm trying to do xyz" and there is code). It shows code, errors and also what you've tried. And it's to the point. So it ticks all five boxes.

Providing context does not mean that you need to describe anything and everything that might ever be relevant. You need to provide enough information for somebody helping you to be able to actually help you.
